Forum rules
You are free to offer your opinions on a show, episode, book, film, film series, cinematic universe, etc., as long as it applies to that item, and not to the stated or assumed political views of the producers, writers, actors, key grip, best boy, intern, etc., of said item. In short, you want to talk about a show or movie, talk about the show or movie.

Others are free to disagree with your opinion. (You are not entitled to express your opinion in a vacuum.) BUT that opposing opinion must follow the same requirements above that the original opinion had to follow, as well as not bringing in the assumed political views of the original poster. (I leave out "stated" as they should not state any political position here on STPMA.)

ALSO, do not toss about derogatory labels at someone who offers an opinion in opposition to yours. No name calling, political labels (SJW, etc.,) questioning their humanity, morality, ethics, true fan status, or your assumption they are in the business to protect a certain fandom (gatekeeping, etc.). Again, discuss the show or movie not the politics or motives of another poster.

If you dislike something, it's perfectly fine to say so. However, posting your dislike every time someone else says anything positive about a show or movie, essentially stating the same thing over and over again is not acceptable. If you have something new to add, or are replying to a specific point in someone else's comment, okay. But if it's just to state once again, "IT SUCKS!" Don't.

Hey,
I just saw this and had a mega sense of Deja Vu, then it hit me why. I want to see if any of my other Trek enthusiasts get the same feeling. The movie is rated R and the trailer is potentially disturbing, you have been warned.



Once you've gotten the feeling of Deja Vu click to see why.
Spoiler:
It's based off The Return to Archons!!!
From ignorance lead me to truth
From darkness lead me to light
From death lead me to immortality

This movie looks dumb on so many levels.

However...
Spoiler:
I wonder if Chris Pine shows up in the last ten minutes and engages Landru in a twisted conversation that saves the day? :D

Paramount should sue.

I think this is how Michael plans on getting rid of inactive members... and the Jedi.

Thanks to FltCpt. Bossco for my Tattok avatar. This is Tattok when he assumed the position of Commander-in-Chief, Starfleet in the year 2411.
